Cover: Oh! If Only...


Book Review
By Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat
Oh! If Only . . .
Michael Foreman

Sometimes it is the little things that cascade out of control and cause big time chaos. A little thing can be practicing soccer with a red ball that gets away from the boy. A dog chases after it and frightens an old lady’s cats, who then frighten the birds, who spook the horses in a parade, and ruin the Queen’s birthday.

Guess what? With chaos all around, the dog is still chasing the red ball into the palace where he demolishes the birthday cake and other fancy stuff. And just when the boy thought he could forget the whole crazy incident, the dog returns with the red ball, and the media is there to cover his embarrassment.

This frolicsome children’s picture book is written and illustrated by Michael Foreman and designed for children from 4 to 9 years old. Although we want to control things and have them happen in the way we want them to happen, we must take whatever comes our way and make the best of it. This is how we develop resilience.
